Using Kraft with Gingerloft

Hello peeps!

I have made a card today for Gingerloft and the Challenge there this fortnight is to use Kraft card - so I did!


I used two of the images from Gingerloft - flowerfield and gardengate. I printed them both twice onto Kraft card and then got out my Prisma pencils and the Zest, and some paper stumps and coloured up the images.   I used the second image of the flowers for the butterfly only, and after fussy cutting this, I coloured it using my Smooch paints for some extra shimmer on the wings! I layered it onto the other butterfly with a dimentional.



The fence was coloured once and then I cut out the bits between carefully - first with scissors and then with a craft knife.  I also coloured up the two end posts and rails on the second image, and cut them out as well, to extend my fence! I mounted the fence over the flowers using dimentionals.


The die cut is Memory Box and the sentiment is from SU, as is all the card.  The papers are from Happily Lost by Lillybeedesign.  I added some bling to complete it and some string. 

I will enter this in the following challenges:
Nutcrafters: Spring theme
Simon Says Stamps: Spring/Easter

Hi Susan, you have some questions about the Splodgeaway mat. If you can contact me via email then I'll let you know how I've got on with it and what my experiences are. My email details are below but I have described the symbol in quotes rather than typing it - in a hope that I don't get more spam lol, also no gaps/spaces!
